WTF?! Friday

 Happy Friday. Enjoy your weekend.

Guess who's sick again? Me. I promise I'm not going around licking handrails to invite germs in. My immune system is so fragile now that I'm carrying a little one. You would think your body would try harder to fight off harmful bacteria now that there's such precious cargo it's carrying but apparently it has to let down it's guard so it doesn't see the baby as a virus. The best part is there isn't much I can do to aid in feeling better. Two weeks ago I was in this exact state. I wish I at least had a little time in between. WTF?!

It takes a special kind of woman to be as domestically challenged as I am. I tried making rice and failed. Not just any old rice either. Instant rice. The kind that takes five minutes to cook and any child that knows how to read could make. Not just once but twice. It came out all kinds of mushy and had such a weird texture. I couldn't eat it. There must be some invisible force in the universe that just doesn't want me to succeed in the kitchen. Trust me, it has nothing to do with the fact that I don't really pay attention to even the simplest of directions. Still, it always amazes me how awful a cook I am.WTF?!

Family portraits are a great way of capturing memories of relatives in a photo studio posing and smiling for no reason. There are plenty of ways photographers get creative and spice things up from the standard sessions. Sometimes photographers step a little too far out of the box though. I don't know who came up with this idea or why the family agreed to it but seriously, WTF?!

I'm sorry that you are sick again, and I hope you feel better soon!!! :) And that picture is just disturbing to me... Unless maybe it was for a nudist family?! Still it's a little creepy.

Its a bummer being sick when you're pregnant. Pregnancy is already uncomfortable enough. Hope you feel better.

OMG on the picture. It cant be for real!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Returning the follow.

I hope you feel better soon! :) And I hope to never see that family photo again, seriously. Why?? And who wants that hanging over their fireplace?

Sorry you are sick. I am too. It's no fun. I have seen that family picture before. It's so nasty. That is definitely a WTF. And I use a rice cooker. I can't make rice without it. Get feeling better!

Cameron Morrison October 28, 2011 at 3:11 PM  

Oh no! Feel better soon!

And that family portrait...seriously? Who does that? Family of nudists? haha creepy!

Shannon October 28, 2011 at 3:14 PM  

I blogged about that picture awhile back too - - soooooo disturbing!

Feel better. :)

Celia October 28, 2011 at 5:19 PM  

That picture is hilarious! Reckon they're a family of naturists?!
Sorry you're not feeling too good, it's the worst when pregnant and you can't take anything to make you feel better, not even a medicinal whisky!x

Kristin October 28, 2011 at 6:34 PM  

Sorry you are sick! :(
That picture is so disturbing, ick! Are they going to frame that and hang it above the fireplace? Gross.

P! October 28, 2011 at 7:02 PM  

That last photo makes me so uncomfortable, I don't think my butt cheeks will unclench for a week (TMI??). But really. That's weird. And I am here to give you an "AMEN" to the statement that, "It takes a special kind of woman to be as domestically challenged as I am." Can you say ruined Ramen noodles? Oh yeah... Happy weekend, my friend!! :D

I hope you feel better soon
that picture is a hot mess...for some many reasons

happy weekend!

Chelsea October 28, 2011 at 8:22 PM  

I'm so sorry you're sick! Man. That freaking blows.

You should also know that I have ruined rice SO many times! Ha. It's harder than it looks! The first time I ever set off the smoke alarm was cooking up that shiz.

And that picture? Hmm. I might be scarred for life.

Venassa October 28, 2011 at 8:33 PM  

Wow that picture is... so creepy.
Hope you're feeling better!

That picture is burned into my brain!!!!!!! That's just.... so wrong in so many ways.

marie October 29, 2011 at 1:47 AM  

Oh yay, we can find comfort in being sick together, I am going on day 3 and I better feel good tomorrow because I have things to do.

I consider myself a good cook, but I can be so scatterbrained and when my mind is on a million different things, even toast doesn't stand a chance.

Are there any words for that picture? Yikes!!!!!!

Kerry October 29, 2011 at 5:18 AM  

OMG!! I nearly choked on my chocolate when I scrolled down and saw that pic! Eewww!
I hope you feel better soon and that it doesn't hang around too long this time.
(seriously, that pic is funny!)

People Who Know Me Would Say: October 29, 2011 at 7:44 AM  

So sorry you're sick. Pregnancy + sickness = icky.

Love your blog name! Love it.

And that family portrait is the epitome of "someone should call Child Services". :)

I'm your newest follower. Please stop by and say hi.

sorry to hear your sick again. how frustrating. i can not make rice either! i can cook, but not rice. i wait till my hubby gets home and have him make it. i always burn it and it comes out crunchy.

The Presutti's October 29, 2011 at 11:03 AM  

I hope you get to feeling better love! And wow-za that picture is freaky and scary. OMG!

Playoutsidegal October 29, 2011 at 8:47 PM  

I LOVE WTF Friday. It always makes me laugh! Except the part about you being sick. Boo... I was sick nonstop too and don't get it cos I'm a germphobe and only washed my hands 50 times a day! Hope you have a speedy recovery and you find some easier-to-make rice. : ) Then again, you could always make the mushy rice into congee... Asians eat that when they're sick.


Our Little Bubble October 29, 2011 at 10:04 PM  

hope you get better and can enjoy some quality time with the man before baby comes!! I totally understand the bummer of the whole prego immune system... I managed to get stomach viruses or food poisoning 2x in 3 weeks in my first tri. It was the PITS!

LOVE MELISSA:) October 30, 2011 at 4:13 PM  

I'm sorry your sick Hun. I hope by the time you read this, you are beginning to feel better!

Krista November 1, 2011 at 12:26 PM  

Um...yuck on the family picture. They coulda' just done something similar with their clothes on for Pete's sake!

Hope you're feeling better by now :)

Caiti November 1, 2011 at 7:24 PM  

I just showed my husband that family photo and he literally said "What the F***?" So, I'd say that captured the essence of WTF Friday. ;)

Holy mother... that picture makes me want to shower. And then never be touched again... EVER!
